“Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.” -Measure for Measure
Hundreds of years later, Shakespeare still has wisdom aplenty to share. You can pick up some of that, along with a healthy dose of entertainment at the The Michigan Shakespeare Festival in Jackson. It starts Tuesday (Jul 15) and continues through August 3rd.
There’s a whole slew of other events in our July Michigan Event Calendar for this weekend including the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, the Venetian Festival in St. Joseph, the Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium in Grand Marais, Concert of Colors in Detroit, Michigan Storytellers Festival in Flint, the Hiawatha Music Festival in Marquette, Waterford’s Quake on the Lake boat race, the Ragtime Street Fair in Dearborn and the Great Lakes Irish Music Festival at Comstock Park in Grand Rapids.
The photo above is from the early stage of last weekend’s Port Huron to Mackinac sailing race. I’m told it was one of the faster ones on record – the bigger boats were actually moving faster than the Coast Guard Cutter that was going to mark their midway times – and that one boat made just two jibes! Hope the wind is at your back this week and as always, post your comments & observations below!
